Happy Wednesday my friends! How’s your week going so far? I’ve been keeping busy over here. December seems to be that way 🙂 Day 2 of the post-turkey day detox has been going rather well. Here’s a pic from some of yesterday’s eats!
I started the day off with some hot lemon water in leu of coffee (that was a tough choice), I drank some kombucha tea and ate an apple with coconut peanut butter for breakfast. For lunch, I ate the last of our leftover turkey and a few bites of the cranberry sauce with a package of almonds. An afternoon snack consisted of green tea and a 1/2 of a kind bar and dinner was a heaping bowl of left over soup.
I left work early to hit up the gym and did 15 minutes of treadmill intervals and a set of arms…nothing too painful because I was saving myself for this:
They should really change the name to scorching yoga. I forgot about what a workout this is. I don’t think I ever blogged about my first Bikram Yoga experience, but I was NOT a fan. I went in the dead of summer, the sun was beating down on me and I thought I was going to pass out and die. To make matters worse, I tweaked my back and had to take a few days off from marathon training.
This time around was a completely different experience. The instructor, Cornelius, was awesome and I didn’t feel like I was going to die. WIN WIN! He was very thorough in his instruction so I knew how to hold my poses and how to change them when something didn’t feel right. I felt amazing afterward and it was something I really needed after killing my legs with Stacey on Monday 🙂
I’m glad I gave it a second chance and I’m pretty sure I’ll be back in the future 🙂
Have you ever given something a second chance and it turns out you really enjoyed it??
